Elliott Wedding

Anniversary Dance

One of our favorite ways to start the crowd dancing at a wedding reception is an “Anniversary Dance.” After all the formal dances have been performed, it is now time to open the dance floor to the guests. With the Anniversary Dance, we invite ALL the married couples out onto the dance floor. In fact, we insist on their participation, letting them know that “sitting this one out” is not an option.

Once all the married couples are on the floor dancing, it is now time to begin eliminating couples based on the number of years they have been married. Obviously, the bride & groom are the first couple eliminated. We then proceed weeding out the other couples using five-year increments. Eventually, only one celebrated couple is left.

We will then ask the married pair to introduce themselves, then find out how many years they have been together. We will then ask them to offer the bride & groom some advice to stay together for as long as they have. Almost every time, the husband has funny ways to tell everyone how his wife is “The Boss”.

Not only is the Anniversary Dance a lot of fun, but it also does a great job of getting most of your guests acclimated to the dance floor which makes them much more likely to dance even more.

Here are some of my favorite songs to use for the Anniversary Dance.

  • Remember When – Alan Jackson
  • Let's Stay Together - Al Green
  • Have I Told You Lately – Rod Stewart
  • What A Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong
  • Unforgettable – Nat “King” Cole & Natalie Cole
  • Through The Years – Kenny Rogers

Teddy Bear Toss

Are you expecting a lot of little ones in attendance at your wedding reception?

Here’s a unique way to include the kids in your special day. Just prior to the Bouquet and Garter Toss, have a Teddy Bear Toss for the kids. Imagine how happy the kids will be to go home with a Wedding Teddy Bear. Be sure to have enough Teddy Bears for each child in attendance. If you have gender specific bears (see picture), you may want to have one toss for the young ladies and another for the young men.

The Teddy Bear Toss is also a great way to reserve the Bouquet & Garter Toss for the next generation who at times tend to enjoy some good-natured antics with the tradition.

Don’t forget the music!

  • Bare Necessities – Jungle Book
  • (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear – Elvis Presley
